Sedation Dentistry in
Chesterfield, Missouri

Do you fear the dentist’s office? You are not alone. A large number of people tend to avoid or put off their dental appointment due to anxiety and fear of being in a dental chair. At Chesterfield Hilltown Dental, we understand your need to be relaxed and comfortable while receiving dental care; therefore, we offer sedation dentistry services to help you achieve both.

Sedation Dentistry in Chesterfield, Missouri

Sedation dentistry makes use of prescription drugs to put a patient in a state of relaxation during the course of their oral care treatments. Sedatives generally work by suppressing the central nervous system. Sedation options offered at our practice are listed below:

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is also known as pill sedation. A small pill is given to the patient about an hour before the beginning of their dental procedure. This is the easiest form of sedation as there are no needles involved. Patients generally have little or no memory of the procedure but are still able to respond and listen to us during the treatment.

Laughing Gas Sedation

Laughing gas is a colorless and odorless gas that can produce a mild to moderate sedation effect. The best part about laughing gas is that it starts to work almost as soon as the patient inhales the gas via a mask placed on their nose. The effects wear off soon after the flow of the gas is turned off.

Local Anesthesia

Local anesthesia is used to prevent the sensation of pain during the course of your oral care treatments. Local anesthetics numb the nerves around the area that is being treated. They are generally injected into the treatment area right before the procedure.

Our family has the best dentist! They do such a great job at cleaning our teeth and they are so gentle too. My 7 year old and 10 year old actually enjoy going! No pain or sourness and they leave with a toothbrush, toothpaste, toy, & a sparkling smile. Dr. Bruening is so kind and is such a great listener. We recommend him to everyone.

Our family (my wife and I, our kids, and our grandson) saw Dr. Alan and Diane and now Drs. Andrew and Carissa. We’ve received nothing but stellar care for many years. Chris and the assistants provide the quality service you expect from a family-owned business. They get my highest recommendation!
